O Olympus… The sacred mountain of the Ancient Greek gods. From antiquity until the present day Olympus has been an inspiration for the whole of humanity. I am more than glad that through the documentary “Mt. Olympus the creation” I have been given the chance to express my feelings towards this sacred mountain and approach its greatness through the music I have composed for the documentary.
I would like to thank Athina Krikeli and all of the friends – collaborators who worked hard during the documentary soundtrack recording.
I would like to – from the bottom of my heart – dedicate to them the Global Music Award and I wish for all of us to take Greece and Mt Olympus a step higher.
